My Students

A typical day in my classroom involves a great deal of learning and laughter. My fifth grade students are an incredibly diverse group of learners who are motivated to put forth their best effort each day. I want my students to grow, not only academically, but also as people.

Our school has about 950 fifth and sixth grade students who come from extremely diverse backgrounds.

This creates a melting pot of ideas that makes classroom discussions fruitful and unpredictable. They are always ready to learn and contribute their thoughts and ideas to create a climate of acceptance.

My Project

My students will be able to use these materials(pocket chart station, paper,mailbox organizer, and the book Lightning Thief) to implement our new literacy program this year, "The Daily Five." This will involve center based learning that will make organization incredibly important. The paper that we have requested will be used to produce our various writing performance tasks throughout the school year.

Donations will improve our classroom by providing materials that my students may not have access to.

My students will come to school each day knowing that they are prepared for what they need to accomplish, which will give them even more confidence for learning.
